Tip for removing grips.

I start at the thumb end and using bull nose plyers pull and maintain tension while cutting with a blade and you can avoid making any contact with the heated grip wires and film.

I also love ProGrip superbike grips ( they are gummy soft , have great cushion and wear like iron)

I do not glue the grips on. I use safety wire in 3 spots and that works just great on both grips.
Now it is easier to change grips or do repairs in the future.
